Compared to 10 years ago, entrepreneur and IT related jobs, which were the most popular, have lost its popularity. At that time, entrepreneurship was expected to be successful, and there came global companies such as Nexon and NHN. But for now, not many people still have the belief.

K-pop is gaining enormous popularity around the world, especially through Psy. It becomes common that a lot of teenagers get trained for singing and acting, preparing for professional entertainment work from their early years.
